director of the san francisco fleet week association. and make no mistake about it, the city and county of san francisco are supporter of the united states military. san francisco fleetwood association is a nonprofit all volunteer organization that was formed to help organize and execute fleet week. and fleet week in 2012 like 2011 and 2010 has adopted a mission to promote the humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions of the united states military. we also, of course, will have the blue angels and the air show that comes with that. the ships will be coming in and the wonderful liberty call that the wonderful men and women in the armed forces will have in san francisco. the fleet week association also, as i say, has a humanitarian and response. along with the civilian disaster response community, we'll have a senior leader seminar taking place on thursday and friday in which the military and the civilian community learn from one another on how to provide disaster response. i should mention that on wednesday morning out at ocean beach, the marine corps and the navy are settin

] the city of san francisco has, one of them being your district, actually, last month, chair kim. and one of the things that i'm learning is how much the immigrant community is unaware of what options and what possibilities and what [speaker not understood] that they have in the city of san francisco, that they don't always have to be afraid. that there is language access and they can access it. and what we as commission can do is expose them and let them know in our own communities. i know the [speaker not understood] community isn't as aware of what the city can offer them and i think that's just the very beginning of what we're doing. but the commission in the last two years that i've been under chair and now chair haile has progressed a lot tremendously over the last two years. and i think being a part of it, i feel that we are available for the immigrant community. and as was stated earlier, we're just moving forward at this time and i like the work that's being done and i'd like the work to continue at this point. thank you. >> thank you, commissioner. thank you for being here today

city. a specialist in francisco. >> the problem with san francisco is that women's suffrage as an idea was associated. >> susan b. anthony joined the provision party. a deadly idea in san francisco. liquor was the foundation of the economy. and >> anything that touched on the possibility of prohibition was greatly and popular. >> the first campaign was a great effort, but not a success. >> the war was not over. less than one decade later, a graphic protests brought new life to the movement. >> women's suffrage, the republican convention in oakland, this time it was the private sector response. 300 marched down the streets of the convention center. women were entitled to be here. >> joining together for another campaign. >> women opened a club in san francisco. it was called the votes for women club. if she could get the shopkeepers to have lunch, she could get them to be heard literature. the lunch room was a tremendous success. >> it was the way that people thought about women willing to fight for a successful campaign. what happened was, the social transformation increase the boundar
>> i may permit consultant in the city. i want to thank you for coming to this because it shows that you really care. i want to ask you a question. some of then transfers for an eatery that serves beer and wine to patrons, when someone wants to transfer or someone else wants to buy the license, if it says on there now live music or no entertainment, and the new person that -- no live music or no entertainment, and the new person that purchases it, they want to modify the conditions. they realize if a petition to modify the conditions, they run the risk of maybe not having the license transfer to them should the modifications be declined. some of these laws on the books a little archaic, and i will give you an example. we now have live entertainment in san francisco, which allows amplified music until 10:00 p.m. if the conditions has no entertainment, and the entertainment, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want t
, is they were able to move more quickly than the city and mta were able to move. we did purchase a site recently for our sustainable street shots. again, did a lease with an option to buy. we were able to convince prologis to have right of first negotiation. they didn't want to sell. they are a real estate investment trust, they just purchased this property last summer so need to gone rate dividends for shareholders. this enables sfmta the time to get our money together to purchase. we would like to purchase before 20 years, no doubt about it. >> again, i appreciate the information and i appreciate the work you've put into . this my question was not what other properties you have looked at but if we have known since 2004 there was a need to move somewhere else, if have known two years, got notice from the port for two years, that's a long time, how it is if we knew we had this need, why is it that someone like that would be able to move in quicker than we? is there something about the way in which the real estate department at the mta approaches its deals that makes it hard for you to be competi
where their hearts are offered to gods who sanctioned conquest. every city and town in the empire pays tribute in exact amount and kind as specified by the aztecs, or risks horrible consequences. in the forests and jungles of other realms, maya kings rule great cities with the force of their own personalities. they build temples and huge stone billboards to prop up royal dynasties that have little actual power. they perform gruesome rituals that require the skins of other people. they go to war and capture players for their ball games -- games where the losers never play again. today, inside ancient pyramids, archaeologists face real danger to bring the story of these kings and their politics out of the past. before the arrival of europeans, two extraordinary civilizations flourished in mesoamerica. both the aztecs and the maya had cultures of startling sophistication, and political systems that were enormously complex. archaeologists are intrigued by ancient political systems. they want to know how these systems were organized and how they evolved. archaeologist arthur demarest. throu

city and south city, i will give more to randy keller who has a lot more familiarity with that. maybe he will clarify. >> hi, i'm randy keller with cassidy turley. >> can i piggy-back on this question. we are on the subject and going to add to supervisor kim's question. we have property -- not we but there is property on geneva used to be, a cow palace and state entity. what are the efforts of looking at that as well as a site. a lot of land that is not being used for anything. in context of this question. >> the cow palace is in particular controlled by the state. they haven't been able to make a decision i guess in 50 years or longer. though every developer has looked, it really lends itself to housing of some sort. if you put a housing overlay on the same product you are looking at the lease, it is substantially high ner terms of value. that is really what happened to the cow palace if and when they can ever get anybody to agree, it will either go to a shopping center or mixed use shopping and residential project. there's no known number that i'm aware of of what they are asking fo

and reflected not only what we needed to see as a city agency and address the needs and concerns outlined by the advocates. mr. campbell's monthly updates to this body were instrumental in letting us know what was happening and we especially appreciate the fact that he always took the feedback into consideration and we wouldn't be here without his ability to do that. mr. campbell's commitment to clean power sf ensured a viable program that met all of the requirements set forth by the city, and so the resolution reads that be it resolve that the san francisco local agency commission hereby congratulates mike campbell and his years of service to the people of san francisco and exprelseses its deepest gratitude for dedication and knowledgeable and forward thinking way to create a program that moves the city and county san francisco environmental goals forward. mr. campbell it is our honor to again acknowledge your work and we thank you and we know that there is hope for the california public utilities commission because you will be starting there very shortly and that is a very good thing
board of supervisors approval as the city attorney has advised us should go before the board. on this particular item i don't think there is anything that significant. it is a matter that the department has to be careful. i don't think there is a very agregious error in what has taken place. as you can see, we are recommending approval of this legislation with the correct amounts to be modified. but you're correct in your observation. this should not happen. >> i haven't seen too many -- to often of a model where there are certain stages expected in terms of a contract renewed over and over, like this one has. this is pretty -- >> are you referring to the -- let me -- i know we are talking about next week as well but those are burning questions. >> supervisor avalos, are you referring to the fact that when the contract was first approved on a competitive basis the initial amount was about 600,000. now we are up significantly to $60 million. in this case we agree with the method the department used. it was always stated to the board of supervisors that after the competitive pr

there was a research study called the san francisco clinic city cohort study or the hepatitis b cohort study, that specimens from is that study were used to develop the very first hiv antibody test to where a link to the past and the future. so, we're a link to the past and the future, and more than anything we're a link to the community. and our motto is where science meets community. our team does really cutting edge research on different kinds of prevention strategies, pre-exposure prophylaxis. and if you go to our website, join prep hiv, you'll see all of the many exciting studies that we have as well as our partnership with san francisco city clinic in launching the first demonstration project of pre-exposure prophylaxis, taking antihiv medicines to prevent new infections. we're studying topical gels, retro microbicide. the way we're going to end this epidemic is through a vaccine, we've controlled other infectious diseases through a cure. we're proud of our staff who contribute to this as well as the many study participants. and i'm just going to close with a quick word about the proje
, the department planning staff does mrao*ef that this project is compliant and consistent with the city's general plan and there's a next step of approvals in this process, we were in conversations with the san francisco planning department which will give a planning referral prior to future approval for this project. hours in operation would have proposed to operate a high quality, affordable seafood restaurant seating for up to 25 people indoors and 50 people outdoors, it's from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., they have the option to open for breakfast at 7 a.m. should they determine a demand, the closing hours will be reviewed at the first six month of operation when the department can analyze the effects that this operation has on the surrounding area, they will measure the impact of the surrounding community, that's failure to follow hours of operation, impact of lighting in the surrounding aria, garbage from the restaurant and any health violation that is are reported. the department has been meet witching -- meeting with the community and there have been a number of issues that have come up, amplified
'm often reminded who holds half of the sky up in this city. i am going to continue inviting all of you -- i am speaking to the women here who do have experience and knowledge and foresight to advise me and my administration of how we can do better. nationally, locally, and internationally. to keep advocating strongly how we can protect and nurture and make sure our society is of equalness. the flashbacks of being at the human rights commission, recalling the advocates that came to meet with me and said palin pour into this for a city to sign on to united nations convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination. [applause] that is still important. a decade later to realize we are one of the very only cities to have done that. how can we still be alone in this effort? we have a lot more work to do. if you do not continue advocating, if we do not have opportunities for you to speak out and for us to listen and to absorb and integrate into our policies, you'll have voices out there that suggest that the issues that women bring not our part -- to bring up our private matters. that cannot
what is right for the city, what's right for the workers. i want to thank the representative of workers and talked about the conditions. no one is questioning the fact that we need to move. it is really about making the best deal we can for the city. or at least the deal that, at least on its face, doesn't look as bad as this one does. you know, i want to work with the mta. i'm just -- i'm just not there. part of the challenge -- i don't mean disrespect to the individual who's spoke, they are trying to do their job, but the question whether or not we have done our due diligence in looking at all the options available, i think that there is a role for brokers to play in these deals. i don't necessarily think that the brokerage is the best person to make that case, you know. i think there has to be an independent third party analysis on that. again, no disrespect to individuals. they are professionals, trying to do their work. but i think there has to be a separation in terms of the different roles. when someone is close to a deal, even the best possible, the analysis on the question of s
